Admission is granted based on the decision by the school with regard to its belief in whether it can benefit the family seeking admission and the parents, who agree with the philosophy of the school and believe it can benefit their child. In other words, we believe that every child has the right to go to a school that is a perfect match for them. Submission of an application to the school is not a guarantee of acceptance.
